Some Feudal Coats of Arms from Heraldic Rolls 1298-1418 makes excellent use of heraldic rolls and stone engravings which existed at the time to give account of arms which had existed since medieval times.
Heraldry has not been overlooked: connected as it is with history, with antiquities , and many existing distinctions, it presented itself at too many points not to secure very general attention; and the desire to become acquainted with its language and its laws are observably diffused to a very wide extent.
The title, An Illustrated Dictionary Of Words Used in Art and Archaeology: Explaining terms frequently used in works on architecture, arms, bronzes, Christian art, colour, costume, decoration, devices, emblems, heraldry, lace, personal ornaments, pottery, painting, sculpture, &c, with their derivations very aptly describes this reference work’s contents, but doesn’t do the concise nature of the contents justice.
A Complete Guide to Heraldry by Arthur Charles Fox-Davies (1871-1928) was originally published in 1909 by T.C. & E.C. Jack. The work has since passed through countless editions and remains in print more than 80 years after its author’s death.
